    Mixed use urban village with 800 or so residential units(IIRC) above retail will be built in between showbiz and the Hilton Garden Inn.

    I’m sure we’ll learn more about it soon.

    Edmond sure is excited for their movie theatre.

    On a side note it would be nice to see Kicking Bird square remodel with structured parking and a new mixed-use building placed on the parking lot in front of kicking bird... they could downsize the cinema, play more indie films, and create a 3 way roundabout with a stand alone box office like old fashioned movie theatres. My pockets arenít deep enough yet.

    Well they did give over $5 million to Showbiz to make this happen, and they have given over $12 million total towards Covell and 35 projects. So I guess the excitement better be there. They seem quite desperate to see something happen at Covell & 35. Why that is THE spot for city officials, Im not sure.

    i think the demographics are particularly strong in that area (see, e.g, https://www.wigginprop.com/listings/...20Coltrane.pdf)

    it's a no-brainer for a big commercial development. and it's far enough away from residential to keep Edmond's NIMBY crowd at bay.

    We stopped at the Starbucks there on the way down on the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving for a coffee and bathroom break. It was the first time that I have been on Covell in that area since before I moved to Austin in 2003. I was shocked at how much has been built there and looks like to be built in the future. I know that one of the discussion points when we did the Henderson Hills Baptist Church master plan for the I-35 location one point that was made often was Edmond's growth was in that direction and how the I-35 corridor is close to the geographic middle of the Edmond city limits.

    As for demographics, whats there is good. Its just that there isnt much desnity. Look north, NE and East and its quite sparse. You right on the NIMBY part, but that shouldnt be an excuse to derail or ignore other good areas of Edmond a far as development goes.

    I imagine they are just looking to the future and probably counting on it to be similar to when folks were building up in the middle of nowhere in the Quail Springs area, like Mercy Hospital, and the growth followed them later.
